EDMONTON — It was one of the rare games this season that the Edmonton Oilers didn't need their top line in full force to earn a win.

Alex Chiasson had a goal and an assist and Mikko Koskinen made 26 saves for the shutout as the Oilers snapped a two-game losing skid with a 4-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Friday.

Leon Draisaitl, Gaetan Haas and James Neal also scored for the Oilers (11-5-2), who improved to 6-2-1 on home ice this season. Draisaitl and Connor McDavid were held to a point apiece after having to carry much of the load for the bulk of the season thus far.

“There were some guys who got on the board that were excited to do so,” said Oilers head coach Dave Tippett. “The other three lines really had an impact with their work in the game. That was a good part of it being a team win.”

Chiasson was relieved to finally be a contributor on the scoresheet, getting his first goal of the season after netting 22 for the Oilers last year.

“Contributions from different guys,” he said. “I’ve said this time and time again: when you have guys on any given night coming in and pulling on the rope, that’s what is going to make this team dangerous.”

The Devils (4-7-4) have lost two straight.

“It’s a hard league and especially on the road you have to find your game early,” said Devils forward Taylor Hall . “Any kind of let up and a couple of bad shifts and it ends up in the back of your net.
